Oakwood Surgeons Perform World's First 3D Surgery Without Special Glasses
Date:4/20/2009

Test of prototype 3D display exceeds performance expectations.

LIVONIA, Mich., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, March 20, 2009, in Taylor, Michigan, three Oakwood Heritage Hospital surgeons and their medical support team assembled to perform a series of surgical procedures on a cadaver to test the new LifeVision(TM) family of 3D technologies developed by Absolute Imaging, LLC, of Livonia, MI. This event marks the first time in history that a surgeon looked at a display and visualized human anatomy in its true-to-life 3D form without having to wear 3D glasses.

"Most of today's laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries are viewed on a flat, two-dimensional (2D), High Definition display," said Richard Kughn, long-time Detroit businessman and co-founder of Absolute Imaging. "Using this prototype 3D display, physicians are able to see human anatomy in its true-to-life form with the added dimension of depth. That they can do so without glasses is a major technological breakthrough. Now surgeons can perform endoscopic procedures with greater comfort and confidence, and have the added benefit of seeing other activity in the operating room with their natural vision."

After several minutes of operating with the unique advantage of 3D visualization, Kurt Martinuzzi, MD, Associate Director of Obstetrics and Gynecology, said of the prototype, "I expect that this exciting new system could be easily incorporated into our operating rooms."

Until the late 1970s, nearly all surgical procedures required an opening in the patient large enough for the surgeon to see inside the body and insert instruments used during the operation. Since then, the miniaturization of video technology has made it possible for surgeons to easily look beneath the skin with cameras connected to tubes called laparoscopes or endoscopes. Minimally Invasive Surgery, or MIS, involves the use of an endoscope in conjunc
